Actor Sam Elliott lends his voice for TV commercials
Actor and Clark alumnus Sam Elliott has provided a voice tag for Clark College Foundation’s upcoming local television commercials.
The voice tag will be part of a series of television commercials that will begin airing October 7, 2013, on local channels KATU and KGW. The commercials are intended to raise awareness of Southwest Washington’s premiere community college and its fundraising campaign.
Clark College’s $20 million comprehensive fundraising campaign, called Ensuring a Bright Future: Campaign for Clark College, supports program excellence, scholarships and facility renovations. The college has just over $2 million left to raise to meet its private-sector support objectives.
Lisa Gibert, president/CEO of Clark College Foundation said she is excited to have Elliott join the Ensuring a Bright Future campaign. “His powerful and familiar voice will help us raise awareness of what Clark College offers. With $2 million left to go in our fundraising effort, our hope is that Mr. Elliott’s connection to Clark will encourage others to offer their generosity—as he has—in support of student learning.”
Elliott, who graduated in 1965, also made a generous donation to the fundraising effort. He said he has fond memories of his alma mater and recalls receiving “great support” from Clark’s faculty.
